We are looking for volunteers to go into the Travis State Jail to assist inmate fathers with recording themselves reading books to their children. This opportunity is ongoing. We are looking for volunteers willing to commit to getting the required TX Dept of Criminal Justice training so they can be approved to volunteer in the Travis State Jail in Austin, TX. Once approved as a volunteer, we ask for a weekly commitment to go into the Travis State Jail with another volunteer to coordinate the reading and recording of books by the inmate fathers. This involves working weekly with 6-8 inmates for about 2 hours, one evening each week and then burning the digital recordings to CDs to be mailed with the books to the inmates' children.
